ABOUT ME


I'm an author from Prague, Bohemia. Writing has been one of my greatest passions since childhood, along with metaphysics and natural magic. I also find inspiration in mythology, legends, and my dreams, visions, and channelings.

I believe that writing and creativity is a kind of metaphysical communication. 
Many authors say that their muses, spirit guides, or guardian angels work with them and help them write. I couldn't agree more, and it keeps amazing me. Each time an idea enters my mind, I feel that it came from a source incomprehensible to my senses. However, only once it aligns with my heart, am I able to start writing it. It truly feels like a channeling that is filtered through my perceptions, emotions, and experiences. And when the reader imagines the story in her or his own way, the true magic happens, as that is how the story stays alive.

Besides writing, I'm an avid researcher of ancient wisdom and teachings, especially those of sacred geometry, magic symbols, runes, and the World Tree of Life. I also practice nature magic. 

I live in the Bohemian countryside together with Viking Gunnar, our dog/dragoness Meera, dog/unicorn in spirit Max, and wise cats Thor(a), Odin, and Merlin.
